Bring your lunch and join us for a noontime lecture with Regent alumna Bethany Sollereder (MCS, 2010), now a Postdoctoral Fellow in Science & Religion at the University of Oxford. Bethany will be giving a talk entitled “God, Evolution, and Animal Suffering: Theodicy without a Fall.”

If God created through evolution, it means that death, suffering, and all the competition of evolutionary development were part of God’s good creation rather than a result of the Fall. Evolution raises new questions about the meaning of innocent animal suffering and the nature of God. In this talk, Bethany Sollereder will embark on an adventure in the theology of creation, reflecting on what science has uncovered about the history of life and what it means for belief in a living and loving God.
